Powerful and riveting! This  short film has a very strong message to convey especially for the youth of today,  especially those who are too willing to jump into pre-marital sex and relationships without really realizing the extent of their actions. Viewers can't help but question the decision of Tisha, she could've approached a local social welfare group or a religious group to help her out?  For surely she was alone, very alone in her struggle, a predicament not even her mother chose to understand.  Right from the beginning of the film, the presence of an old man, a vagrant, will catch the attention of viewers and as he appears for the second time there is a conclusion that this character will somehow have a significant role and true it is, as he was the appointed savior of an innocent soul.  Magnificent portrayals especially by the actress who  portrayed Tisha. Shout out to director and writer Rashaad Ernesto Green for the great story and cinematography.

Very sad movie, the actress who does Tisha was absouletely talented. I can't understand why she didnt get a special award for this. The film does visualise a message for teenagers who have become mums very early and who have no support. I would definately recommend that people who haven't seen it, watch it!
